We are in the home stretch and just about ready to add a sweet baby girl to our family. I’m almost 38 weeks and the excitement is REAL around here. Hudson has asked for a sibling for so long, and it pained me that we were not able to get pregnant as easy this time around. When I did get pregnant last year our family was OVERJOYED! Hudson had ALL the questions and took his new title as big brother seriously. It’s the most precious. We pulled out some books to read with Hudson and answer his questions!
